Midranged Gaming Laptop


I am looking to buy a mid range gaming laptop priced anywhere from $700-$1,000 (warranty included). I am not someone who needs to play on high settings, but I would also like this laptop to be able to last long enough to play upcoming (mostly Dota 2 and Diablo III) and future games without worry.

I live in the US and would prefer to buy an ASUS laptop, as I read they are the most reliable and durable.

I have two current options that I was looking at:




I am kind of leaning toward the Costco one because of the extended manufacturer warranty, Costco's apparently amazing return policy, and the extra RAM and i7 vs. i5.

If anyone knows of any better options, I would definitely love the advice!

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

  2. How's this: $30 more expensive, and a slightly small HDD, but a much better graphics card, which is probably more important for gaming.
